Rosa's story

Rosa is a member of the "María Asunción Galindo" communal bank located in the district of Juli, province of Chucuito-Juli, in the department of Puno. She is 43 years old, married and has three children. Rosa was unable to go to school and is illiterate.

She has worked with the Manuela Ramos Movement for 12 years. She used her first loan in the amount of 300 PEN to buy thread for her embroidery work.

Now she has a trout farm with six cages and some 30,000 trout. Every six or seven months they are ready to be sold. She has a fixed customer base in the community. The entire family works in this business.

With the new loan in the amount of 1500 PEN, she plans to buy seven sacks of trout feed. Her dream is to expand production with more cages and trout in order to improve income. She likes the punctuality of the communal bank.
